Considering the field of design, Munich certainly plays an outstanding role in Germany, perhaps even Europe. The scene may not be as large as in Berlin, London or Barcelona. Nevertheless, designers such as Ingo Mauerer (light design) or Konstantin Grcic (industrial design) play an important role in shaping fashion-forward surroundings all over the world. With regard to graphic design, the city can also be proud of an outstanding representative of the craft. Born in Tegernsee near Munich, Borsche has established himself as one of Germany’s most important forward thinkers in magazine design. His distinguished career has not gone unnoticed and Borsche will be given one of the rare opportunities to present his work in a museum. For his Munich exhibition, however, Borsche will not merely display his recent assignments. The graphic designer has rather chosen to reproduce his magazine and CD covers as hand-painted black and white posters. With this unprecedented approach, Borsche aims at scraping out the continuity of his visual language and at redefining the relevance of posters presented at an art exhibition.
